MERIDITH NOVARA-TAMAKI, LMT
Bringing MAGIC, PEACE and TRANQUILITY to the world one massage at a time.
Meridith is a NYS Licensed Massage Therapist with a passion for healing others. Her nurturing spirit combined with her fascination of Kinesiology and structural anatomy is what guided her into Massage Therapy. Her clients often refer to her as “Magic Hands” because they typically leave her treatment room feeling centered, peaceful and like they just “melted into her table”.
Meridith takes a holistic approach to each treatment encompassing the mind, body and spirit of every client. She firmly believes that calming the mind is just as important as relaxing the muscles. Each treatment is tailored to the individual client’s needs to help them reach their personal healing goals. Clients always leave Meridith’s care feeling rejuvenated and are left wanting more!
Meridith practices what she preaches and has dedicated herself to maintaining optimal health and wellness through her many years of experience in weight training, various aerobic activities and exercises, as well as her personal Yoga practice. She obtained her Associates Degree in Massage Therapy from the New York College of Health Professions in Syosset and her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury. She worked in Human Resources for 12 years prior to finding her true calling of Massage Therapy.
When away from her massage table, Meridith loves spending time with her family, which includes caring for and chasing after her two very active toddlers. She has a 5-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter. Meridith enjoys teaching them both about the importance of maintaining a happy, healthy and balanced lifestyle. They, of course, take full advantage of having a Massage Therapist Mommy and ask for a massage almost every day!

THE HEALING POWER OF TOUCH:
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body (muscles, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments) using smooth and rhythmical strokes in order to provide pain relief, stress reduction and enhance overall health and wellness. Long gone are the days where Massage Therapy was considered a luxury. The healing power of touch has proven itself to be an integral part of maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Massage Therapy activates the “rest and digest” part of the autonomic nervous system, which provides you with an elevated sense of peace and tranquility. This sense of peace and calm will remain with you long after you leave the Massage Therapy table.
